Saturday, December 16th

5:00 pm - Christmas Musical Performance "Shepherds and Kings – Following the Star, Seeking the Light!"
The Music and Worship Arts ministry of Good Shepherd will present a special program of Advent and Christmas music featuring Shepherd’s Voice Choir and New Sound Praise Ensemble.  Scripture lessons, carols and anthems will tell the story of the shepherds and kings, following a special light that led them to Bethlehem to find Jesus.  Following the lighting of the advent wreath candles, the service commences with the hymn "Rejoice, Rejoice Believers". From there, special songs and messages from God's Word will celebrate the Good News that Jesus came to save us, that He truly is the Light of the World. The choirs will share a new setting of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" by Dan Forrest, "Sleeping Adonai" by Heather Sorenson and will sing the popular " I Have Seen the Light" by Chris Machen and "This Little Light of Mine". The singing of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing!" by the congregation and choirs will conclude the service.

Pastor Steven Maske will deliver an Advent homily entitled, “Greater Things".
